Today I am featuring a card using lovely cream shimmer cardstock and sparkling roses. I love cream shimmer card and it goes so well with pearls. Add some sparkly pink roses and you have a very pretty and romantic card. I have just got a Gemini die cutting machine and I was playing around with some die cutting and embossing with Spellbinders dies and I was very happy with the result.

I have used a pre-cut 7” x 5” card base but you can cut your own using a piece of white 10” x 7” cardstock and scoring at 5” along the long side and fold in half for your card.
Die cut the lace edge out from the shimmer cardstock and then emboss using the instructions for your die cut machine. Adhere to the bottom edge of the card. Cut a piece of shimmer cardstock at 7” x 2 ½” and adhere to the top of the card. Cut a strip of shimmer card 7” x ¾” and emboss using the lattice embossing folder. Adhere to the card as shown and line each edge with a pearl strip.
To make the sentiment frame die cut the small frame from the Devine Eloquence set and then emboss the die for a textured finish. Adhere to the centre of the card using a double layer of foam squares to give height to go over the pearls. Add the peelcraft sentiment.
To make the flowers stamp with Coral Rose ink, sponge the colour over the stamped images and then die cut. Shape the roses using the Deluxe Shaping kit. Once flowers are completed spray with spray adhesive and sprinkle Crystal glitter over them for a sparkly finish.
To make the leaves stamp using versamark and emboss with the Aged Ivory embossing powder. Sponge with Bamboo Leaves and then die cut out. Shape the leaves with the Deluxe Shaping kit.
Trim the leaves and add to the top right corner and bottom left corner using a combination of Dries Clear adhesive and foam squares. Add the flowers as shown.
